Tshirt to wedding gown

This wedding gown I created from mens 2XX white t shirts and one ladies white t shirt. I dyed the shirts, stones and buttons pink. The gown was modeled in a t shirt fashion show at university here and was also on display at the Bridal Expo this month!

    Very feminine. It is beautiful. Very creative.

    Sophrona. This is absolutely amazing! I love how your designs work/look. Is the gown sized for a short person. Curious, trying to picture how the design elements were cut and put together using only 3 tees.

    Thanks for your inspiration. I'd love to have the same skill/design set.

    Oh, did you take design classes or is your skill self-taught. Either way, love what you're doing.

    Hi 4mythreads. The model for this gown is about 5'9 (that's tall for me). I cut the tops off the t shirts and used the fabric lengthwise. The top of the gown was from the ladies T. I have not gone to design school, I just like trying different things, different techniques and I love a design challenge. Thank you so much for your encouragement!

    For one High School reunion with a beach theme, I wanted to wear matching outfits with my husband. I bought three Hawaiian shirts. One, my husband wore "as is" and the other two became my shirt dress. I used one for my top, one for the skirt of my dress. The sleeves became flounces around the hem and I was even able to use the yoke for inseam pockets! It was fun to wear and to match! I took some pictures of my construction. My favorite part of the dress is the flounce around the knees! The hardest part was getting the darts in and finishing the armholes. The dress is sleeveless.

    I have three more shirts that I can repeat with. I learned a few things and would make some changes. I added nothing but thread to the shirts to make the dress.

    Fantastic! I really admire what you have done with the "lowly" t-shirt.
